This was the vacation from hell. House was out in the dense rain forest. Cockroaches greeted you when you turned on the lights. No A/C and you definitely need it. Never saw the sun. Supposed to stay 2 months left in 2 weeks.

We planned to stay on the big island for only 2 nights and ended up sleeping in the car and getting off the island the next day. We arrived at 8pm and turned on the light to see a ton of the biggest cockroaches I have ever seen running across the floor. As if this wasn't bad enough, the had...

I have stayed at Deep Hawaii vacation rentals numerous times, and have found the accommodations to be above and beyond the ordinary. There was fresh fruit, flowers,coffee, pancake mix, and other various goodies waiting for us upon our arrival. The rental was clean, and the kitchen was equipt with all the necessities. The owners gave us helpful insight into the...

The one bedroom cottage was spotlessly clean and well-appointed. The kitchen was amply equipped with eating utensils, pots and pans, and matched dishware. We experienced excellent WIFI, good TV reception, and relaxation on the lanai (patio), surrounded by various indigenus plants, shrubs, and trees. Our host thought of everything, including a fruit basket, milk and some food in the refrigerator,...

I must say that my husband and I had a awsome time. The manager was so helpful and pointed out places to go and things to see. The closest place to get a newspaper and gas was the first left from the main road. You could almost walk to it. The cottages are all being updated with new beds and...

We have added BOTH Internet and cable in June '08. We've also done extensive landscaping to add to the hunreds of trees and plants already there before. And, more updating of furnishings. Our goal is for our guests to say: "All this for only $...." And then recommend us to their friends and family . . .as well as return-perhaps...

Still cannot believe the difference between what was promised by the web site, and what we found there. This place was filthy, smelled like chicken dung, and was way, way far from any place we wanted to be ( was represented by the owner to to be " near Pahoa, ha!) and was actually located in a housing tract or...

As the new owner of Deep Hawaii, I am concerned about this reviewer's experience. I am unaware of any chicken dung smell, the closest chickens are 1/4 mile away; mosquitoes are a presence in east Hawaii, which we try hard to control; Pahoa is 15 minutes away; Orchardland is 5 minutes; Keaau town is 15 minutes; and Hilo is 25...

This place is a total rip off and a dump. We rented the one bedroom unit. Nearly ruined our vacation last summer. The cottages are dirty, hot, and have no working fans ( The caretaker explained to us that the owner sets them to turn so slowly, to save power) The sheets are ragged and did not smell clean. Our...

"Last Summer" means 2006, but review was entered in 2007. I became the new owner JUly 2007. Since then, we have had nothing but compliments: cleanliness; new furnishings; helpful management-even to the point of driving one guest around that couldn't drive. New dishes, new pots and pans; new bedding; new linens. And CLEAN. My manager is fastidious to a fault!...

We stayed in the studio unit. This property has several individual units. The studio is the smallest and it has a washing machine, no dryer. The unit has no a/c so you must leave the windows open at night. The roosters in the neighborhood will wake anybody up. The website states there are fruits on the property to pick but...

I am the new owner of Deep Hawaii since July 2007. I am sorry the reviewer's experience wasn't all together a pleasant one under the former owner's management. Since taking over, many improvements have been made, and I thtink the reviewer could now have a great experience "in the country" I hope he will give us a try in the...
